MELVILLE, N.Y., Apr. 24, 2023 — AIP Publishing is proud to announce the first published articles of APL Energy, one of the newest additions to its expanding portfolio of groundbreaking physical science journals.
Established to welcome the most significant and exciting scientific developments related to energy and the integration of energy technologies, APL Energy covers storage, harvesting, conversion and generation, hybrid energy, materials, and far more — including circular economy, machine learning, and the environmental impact of energy technologies.
“Technological innovation has always been a key player in the progress of renewable energy,” said Prof. Mónica Lira-Cantú, APL Energy Editor-in-Chief. “Efforts to innovate are required now more than ever and should encompass fundamental and innovative research based on new approaches to convert, generate, store, and harvest energy. APL Energy aims to be a part of this profound transformation by bridging the gap between fundamental research and technological innovation.”
“APL Energy invites research that is the result of fundamental groundbreaking ideas which can revolutionize the way we think, utilize, and apply energy,” she added. “We are eager to publish high quality research works that inspire and are a result of that ‘eureka’ moment, that foster innovation, and promote the vision of our green energy future in a unique approach.”
APL Energy is also making it a point to recognize the importance of diversity and inclusion in energy and climate change research, encouraging work that takes representation into account — bringing about a more sustainable and equitable future by understanding and effectively addressing these oft-overlooked dimensions of climate change. The publication will strive to ensure diverse representation among its Associate Editors, Editorial Advisory Board members, authors, and reviewers.
“We’re thrilled to welcome APL Energy into the AIP Publishing fold,” said Dr. Penelope Lewis, AIP Publishing’s Chief Publishing Officer. “Prof. Lira-Cantú’s vision for a journal that approaches this field with a modern, inclusive lens is refreshing — and vital. Between an impressive slate of editors with an eye for groundbreaking science and a mission statement that places importance on delivering an energy future as equitable as it is sustainable, I am excited to see what the future has in store for APL Energy.”
Leading APL Energy as it takes its first steps is a decorated and deeply talented editorial team, including: Prof. Mónica Lira-Cantú (Nanostructured Materials for Photovoltaic Energy Group, Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, Spain), Prof. Yabing Qi (Energy Materials and Surface Sciences Unit, Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology Graduate University, Japan), Prof. Samira Siahrostami (Department of Chemistry, University of Calgary, Canada), and Prof. Xingbin Yan (School of Materials Science and Engineering, Sun Yat-Sen University, China).
